I call Mondays--Meatless Mondays, so I am having Black beans with rice along with salsa, avocado,etc...

I will also be making Tuscan Chicken (Chicken, white beans, tomatoes and Rosemary)

Other than that, we will be eating out or having leftovers!

I have enjoyed seeing what your meals are for the week. I like to look ahead as well and plan my week.


i am making cauliflower soup (your fabu recipe) tonight withe homemade crouts and some roasted veggies (although it now seems to warm for roasted veggies). we made chilli last night and tomorrow, some sort of chicken concoction. the rest of the week? leftovers. and now i am totally drooling in anticipation of dinner friday night!

I don't cook as much as I'd like normally, and this week is especially hectic due to school finals, but tonight I decided I wanted something not-pizza and not-fast-food, so I'm making a beef and acorn squash slow cooker recipe.

I like slow cooker recipes, but find that they rarely save me as much time as they like to pretend they will. ;)

I also just decided that I am finally making the Rum Balls that I've been wanting to make since X-mas, because I'm tired of seeing the recipe pinned to my cork board by my computer, staring at me in an accusatory way. Yay for procrastination!


OMG...I totally forgot that St. Patty's Day was this weekend! How did that happen?!

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
